Dame Judi Dench And Chris Hemsworth Unite Against Plastic Pollution By Becoming Citizens of The Trash Isles

The world's first country made of trash, the Trash Isles, has welcomed a host of new famous ambassadors to join the fight against plastic pollution in our oceans.

Chris Hemsworth, Al Gore, Gal Gadot, Mark Ruffalo, Brandon Flowers, Sir Mo Farah, Jeff Goldblum, Lethal Bizzle, Ezra Miller, Andy Serkis, Jason Momoa, Gerard Butler and Dame Judi Dench have joined the 200,000 other Trash Isles citizens by supporting the mission to raise awareness of the world's plastic waste epidemic.

With plastic set to outweigh fish in our oceans by 2050, the importance of this issue is growing by the day. Andy Serkis spoke to us about the growing reliance of one-use plastic; "we can't get away from it and it will not get away from us.

There has been a push to make the United Nations understand that if it had the rights as a country it might cause something to be done about it, because we have to take responsibility."

Whilst the United Nations praised the Trash Isles campaign as "creative and innovative", the organisation said the chances of it becoming a legitimate country was "nil".

However the campaign will continue, with the help of some of the world's highest profile stars, to ignite change and reduce plastic pollution.

Gal Gadot emphasised the importance of us all pulling together to make a positive difference; "Some people say that's it's not true. It's very much true.... It starts with us".

So join us to fight plastic pollution by becoming a citizen of the Trash Isles and sharing it with your mates.

Plus, there are loads of simple things you can do that make a big difference; from using a refillable bottle for water to bringing your own carrier bags when you go shopping.

Come on, fellow Trash Isles countrymen. Let's put down the plastic, get off our arses and pull together to ensure the world's first country made of Trash, is its last. Sign the petition here.
